How big are your files?
I start with Spotlight, which picks out the individual filenames, and then open them in SubEthaEdit.
Spotlight isn't an issue: it's made to be able to scan the whole computer, so obviously it can do my logs standing on its head. I don't know what SubEthaEdit's absolute ceiling is. For a while I was using it on an 85MB text file (not one of my logs, duh ;)). Got a bit sluggish, but it plugged along.
If you're on That Other Platform I assume there are equivalents for each.

Yup, I'm on Windows. :)
And the log files are around 6mb each give or take 1mb, but 6 months worth of them (one file for each day).

it is supposed / was designed to be only for media cataloging..but it can do many other things ..very good at finding "strings" in windows ( any version )..and is very fast.

There's also a grep for windows.

This. grep -R "ip" * is probably the easiest solution.
